2013 GMC Savana Passenger 1500
The 2013 GMC Savana Passenger 1500 full-size van is designed to haul as many as 12 passengers or a huge amount of cargo within its cavernous confines.

The 2013 GMC Savana Passenger 1500 is motivated by a 5.3-liter V-8 engine that generates 310 horsepower and 334 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission is standard, and buyers can choose between either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. Fuel mileage for the van checks in at 13-mpg in stop and go driving and 17-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% or $1,000 cash back on the 2013 GMC Savana Passenger 1500 available until 04/30/2013.

2013 Ford Explorer
The 2013 Ford Explorer represents the redesigned version of the Blue Oval's iconic SUV vehicle. Far less truck-like than in the past, the current Ford Explorer crossover provides three rows of seating for up to seven passengers, and it also offers 80 cubic feet of total cargo space.
The 2013 Ford Explorer's base engine is a 3.5-liter V-6 that is good for 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. A four-cylinder 'upgrade' is also available in the form of a 240 horsepower, 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine that additionally generates 270 lb-ft of torque. The top-of-the-line Explorer Sport is blessed with a twin-turbo 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 that produces 365 horses and 360 lb-ft of torque. Each of these engines is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission, both V-6's can be had with four-wheel drive (standard with the Explorer Sport), and the four-cylinder model turns in fuel mileage figures of 20-mpg in city driving and 28-mpg on the highway.
There is a financing incentive of 0.9% plus $500 cash back or $2,000 total cash back on the 2013 Ford Explorer available until 04/01/2013.

2013 Chevrolet Tahoe
The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe is a traditional, full-frame SUV that is adept at towing (up to 8,500 lbs) as well as hauling both human and other forms of cargo.

The 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe comes exclusively with a 320 horsepower, 5.3-liter V-8 under the hood. Also capable of generating 335 lb-ft of torque, this unit is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and can be outfitted with optional four-wheel drive.

2013 Dodge Charger
The 2013 Dodge Charger offers a split personality for full-size sedan shoppers. In entry-level form it provides spacious and comfortable family accommodations, with the option of moving up to a fairly high level of features and equipment. In R/T trim, the Dodge Charger's malevolent looks are backed up with a stiffly-sprung, performance ready suspension system and a few other tricks to help win the stoplight grand prix.
The 2013 Dodge Charger is initially outfitted with a 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6 that offers up 292 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque, on its way to fuel mileage of 19-mpg city and 31-mpg highway. It's also possible to up the output of this engine to 300 horses and 264 lb-ft of torque via a pair of options packages. The Charger R/T makes use of a less-thrifty 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 that churns out 370 horsepower and 395 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive is optional with either mill, while a mix of five and eight-speed automatic transmissions are offered with the Charger.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $1,000 cash back or $3,500 total cash back on the 2013 Dodge Charger available until 04/01/2013.

2013 Nissan Maxima
The 2013 Nissan Maxima is intended to deliver an above-average driving experience for those who need to buy a full-size sedan but who don't want to leave fun behind in the process. The Nissan Maxima's well-tuned chassis can be complemented by a surprising level of high tech equipment that can be added as options to the top-tier SV trim level.
The 2013 Nissan Maxima's 3.5-liter V-6 is capable of delivering 290 horsepower and 261 lb-ft of torque, and this output is managed by a continuously-variable automatic transmission. The autobox helps the car achieve fuel mileage of 19-mpg in city driving and 26-mpg on the highway while still offering very respectable acceleration off of the line.
There is a financing incentive of 0.0% plus $500 cash back or $3,500 total cash back on the 2013 Nissan Maxima available until 04/01/2013.
